Curious about trying out Microsoft’s latest Windows 10 for Mobile but cannot let go of Android just yet? The upcoming Wei Yan Sofia could be the perfect smartphone for you then. The smartphone will allegedly dual-boot Windows 10 and Android when it launches later this year.
Alleged images of the handset were leaked on Weibo recently and the device could be one of the first Windows 10 smartphones to be launched by a Chinese manufacturer. Along with the images of the device, possible specifications have also been revealed. The Wei Yan Sofia will apparently feature a 5-inch display with 1080p resolution and will be powered by an Intel chipset. More specific details on the chipset aren’t available though, so we’re not quite sure what exact chip the smartphone will make use of. It will offer 2GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage, which sounds quite impressive for a device that is aimed at the budget market. As far as the cameras go, the smartphone will come with a 13MP camera at the back and a 5MP front-facing camera. The company has made no compromises with connectivity options as well, the Sofia will offer 4G LTE connectivity as well.
In case you’re worried if the Wei Yan Sofia will be offered with an outdated Android version, you will be relieved to know that the smartphone will come with the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop version. So basically you are getting a relatively impressive mid-range smartphone with the latest mobile operating systems from Google and Microsoft. Sure sounds impressive, doesn’t it? Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like the smartphone will be offered in markets outside China as Wei Yan is not a manufacturer we have heard of earlier. There are no details on the Chinese launch of the device as well.
